Thu, 03/04/2010 - 2:20pm
UNC Asheville’s Craft Campus will continue its “Meet the Maker: Conversations with Craftspeople” lecture series. Local sculptor Susan Hagen will present “The Teenager Project” at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 16, in UNC Asheville’s Highsmith University Union, room 104. The event is free and open to the public.
Hagen holds a master’s degree in sculpture from the Cranbrook Academy of Art, and has exhibited her work in various museums and galleries, including the World Tattoo Gallery in Chicago, del Mano Gallery in Los Angeles and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. Hagen uses small yet powerful woodcarvings to depict places, people and emotions. She incorporates her interests in art history, animal behavior, psychology, alchemy, mythology and religion into her work. In her recent work, “The Teenager Project,” Hagen considered the uniqueness of teenagers attempting to define their identities in modern culture through clothing, hairstyles and backpacks.
